The School Board hired Gentile in April 2010 as the district's chief internal auditor. On his resume, he listed himself as a CPAin Florida and New York. Larry Murray, a candidate for the District 3 School Board seat being vacated by Duncan Mathewson, pointed out the discrepancy to Superintendent Jesus Jara. Monday, Jara said via email he handed the matter over to the district's law firm, Vernis and Bowling. "I directed [attorney] Dirk Smits to complete a full investigation on the allege[d] misconduct," Jara says. "Mr. Gentile was notified that we are starting an investigation." Before he was hired, recruitment firm The Mercer Group vetted Gentile's resume. From a February 2010 report: "He is a certified public accountant in New York and that was verified.... I have been unable to confirm his CPA license with the state of Florida." ACPAmust undergo more rigorous academic training than an accountant, as well as pass a licensure examination that varies from state to state and maintain a set amount of continuing education credits. CPAs can perform audits, regular accountants cannot. Tuesday, Gentile shrugged off the issue. He said his job doesn't require the CPAlicensure which, since he holds the CPAdesignation in New York, he could easily obtain by filling out some forms and paying a $300 fee to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. "I think the process of going through and getting the certification will show there's no issue," Gentile says. "It's just not activated."

CIRCUMNAVIGATING THE ISLANDRains bring early crop of mosquitoesIn the mosquito control business, the primary measure of how things are going is called the landing rate count. It might also be called the slap test, because it entails standing in a spot for one minute and counting bites, like this: One. Slap! Two. Slap! And so on. Judging by slap rates over the past month, South Florida could be facing another mean mosquito season. An early, wet start to the rainy season has triggered an unusually early explosion of buzzing hordes and calls for help from bugged residents. Drier weather over the past few weeks has helped, but when the heavy rains come again, mosquito control agencies across South Florida are concerned about rising public health risks from illnesses spread by some species, including dengue fever, West Nile virus and malaria.

Until about the end of the month, northbound traffic on Truman Avenue (so named when Roosevelt enters Old Town) between Georgia Street and Eisen-hower Drive is rerouted as follows: White Street to Flagler Avenue, then First Street back to North Roosevelt. City spokeswoman Alyson Crean says the "change is being implemented immediately to better ac-commodate truck traffic and emergency vehicle res-ponse." According to the state Department of Transport-ation, around June 25, the intersection of Truman and Eisenhower will undergo "intermittent partial and complete intersection closures" for three or four days while crews work on a sewer main connection. For 27 months starting on June 28, the construction will move to North Roosevelt between Eisen-hower Drive and Palm Avenue, beginning a switch on the boulevard to one lane of traffic in either direction.Headaches to last nearly three yearsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTSee N.Roosevelt,3A Photo by JAN LOVELANDFlorida Keys Wildlife Rescue Director Maya Totman releases a great white Heron Saturday off the Lower Keys.

School Committee on Monday passed over Keys Superintendent Jesus Jara for its top schools job. But he remains in the running to retain his job in Monroe County and to take over Santa Fe (N.M.) Public Schools. Jara was one of two finalists for the job in Springfield, where he previously worked. The School Committee chose Daniel Warwick as its next superintendent. Jara is one of five finalists vying for the Monroe County superintendent post; the term he's filling expires in January. The School Board is set to make a selection on June 28. The start date is Aug. 1, with a salary of between $125,000 and $150,000; Jara earns $135,000 annually. Jara will be in Santa Fe later this week to interview alongside five other candidates; that selection is expected by early August. "I need to consider the entire scenario," Jara says of his job search, citing the "relationship between [the board] and superintendent, direction where the district wants to go, etc...." Jara is working in the Keys without a contract and commutes on the weekends to be with his wife and three children in Miami. The four other Monroe County finalists are: Thomas Gay, a principal administrator for a Broward County private school. Shannon Goodsell, superintendent of Tahlequah (Okla.) Public Schools in Tahlequah. Mark Porter, superintendent of South Washington County (Minn.) Schools. Edward Shine, superintendent of the Rye (N.Y.) City School District. The School Board is set to make its decision on June 28 at a meeting set for 2 p.m. at the Marathon High School media center. This is the first time the Keys superintendent will be hired by the board rather than elected, as voters made the change in a countywide referendum in 2010. Randy Acevedo was the last elected superintendent, voted into office for the second time in 2008. The following year, then-Gov. Charlie Crist removed him following his indictment on official-misconduct charges. He was convicted of the felonies and has since completed three years of probation.Superintendent still in hunt for two jobsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSthe district Audit and Finance Committee, often butted heads with the administration is using the issue for political gain. "It seems to me to be pointed toward an agenda," Gentile said. "I think because he's running for an election ... I think he's going after me personally. He's never contacted me, asked me or asked for any information from me." According to the BPR, to get Florida certification, Gentile has to go through a process called "licensure by endorsement" whereby he provides "proof that [he has] passed a licensing examination that is substantially equivalent to the examination required by the licensing agency." Until he does that, he can't perform CPAfunctions in Florida. Asked if his resume suggests otherwise, he said: "It could. That could be confusing. They would not ask me at least I don't think they would ask me to perform a CPAfunction. None of my job description, tasks or anything I'm required to do currently requires a CPA." "I don't see that as fraudulent, misleading or unethical at all. The board can make that determination. They can have an airing; they can have someone independent review it." "It's serious, OK, at least from what I know so far," says School Board Chairman John Dick. "It sounds like it's real bad." Gentile is working under a three-year contract, valid until next April, that pays $122,000 annually. He has a master's of business administration from the University of South Florida and an undergraduate degree in accounting and economics from Queens (N.Y.) College.Dick calls it serious'From Gentile,1A cases have been reported in South Florida this year but the mosquito season doesn't typically peak until sometime in July. Counties combat mosquitoes with chemicals that carry their own risks, particularly to the environment. The insecticides sprayed from trucks and planes common brand names include Bi-Mist 30+30 and Dibrom typically contain "broad spectrum" pesticides such as naled or permethrin. They can irritate the eyes or skin of people exposed to low concentrations in fogging treatments, but they're potentially toxic to marine and aquatic life. Studies have shown they can have ripple effects across the marine food web, killing fish and conch larvae, but also affect desirable insects such as endangered butterflies that live in coastal hammocks. Those residual impacts make controlling mosquitoes in South Florida extremely challenging. The Florida Keys are surrounded by mangrove islands, fragile coral reefs and seagrass beds in federally protected waters. Miami-Dade is bordered by Everglades National Park and Biscayne National, both of which ban aerial and truck spraying, as do many state parks. "It's a balance that we need to walk of environmental protection and protecting people from mosquitoes," said Michael Doyle, director of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District. Because of the restrictions on chemical spraying near water, for instance, the Keys'control program employs a lot of larvicide bacteria that selectively target the developing offspring of the region's most common bloodsucker, the black salt marsh mosquito. Mosquito control operations take steps to limit human exposure, as well, scheduling spraying in pre-dawn or night hours that maximize the impact on bugs and minimize it to people. While salt marsh mosquitoes are largely an annoyance, other species can be more dangerous, passing on a host of illnesses, including dengue, a nasty, flu-like illness that sickens some 50 million people annually. In severe cases, it can be fatal and there is no known treatment. Dengue, carried by a mosquito called Aedes aegypti, reemerged in Key West in 2009 with 27 cases the first recorded in the continental United States since 1945. The threat is significant enough that the Keys district hopes to test a genetically modified mosquito designed to breed with and kill aegypti, a controversial treatment option that has not yet received state and federal approval. While there have been pockets of heavy infestation, the mosquito season so far is notable mainly for its early start. Judging by landing rate tests, traps and resident complaints, the numbers are up a bit in some spots, down in others. In the Keys, the hot spot ran from Key Largo down to Upper Matecumbe, where the landing rate ran 7.69 mosquitoes, Doyle said. Last year, the highs ran around 20, he said. The Keys routinely run tests at 250 landing rate sites from Key West to Key Largo, with employees selecting 15 to 20 sites to visit every morning. At protected areas where spraying is banned, landing rates in a minute might run into the hundreds, Doyle said. Traps in places like Everglades National Park can produce a pound of mosquitoes overnight, hundreds of thousands or more. Whatever the landing rates tests indicate, there are plenty of anecdotal reports of a heavy mosquito crop this year.Skeeters a Keys challengeFrom Mosquitoes,1A A ABURCHHobartA.Burch (better knownasHobe)expiredon June16,2012.Therewillbea celebrationofhislifeinOrange Beach,Al.

"That's important for the rest of us in the Middle and Upper Keys because those eggs are ending up here." Astudy of seagrass beds in the research zone "found a much more robust juvenile fish population than I probably thought was occurring," Hunt said. "It's making me rethink how the whole Tortugas area works," he said. "We've always recognized that seagrass beds serve as a nursery ground but now it looks like some of the shallow areas in the national park are serving in a juvenile support capacity." "Now we have protected areas that make sense as a protected area for reasons we did not think of before we started," he said. Average sizes of red grouper, yellowtail snapper and hogfish seen in the research area have increased since the zone was implemented, the report notes. Some of these fish do migrate out of the zone to areas where they may be harvested. Boat access and no-take diving is allowed inside research zone but boats must tie up to mooring buoys. With the combination of sanctuary ecological reserves and park water in the Tortugas, Hunt said, "In that setting, within the confines of those managed areas, I think it's all working to have positive effects across the broader region." The researchers will recommend to the FWC that special protections for the zone be extended.

District Director Michael Doyle and Comptroller Bill Southcott rolled out a preliminary spending plan that decreases operating expenditures from the current year's $11.9 million to $11.2 million in 2012-13. The total budget is $13.76 million, which includes $4 million in contingencies and reserves, compiled according to estimated taxable property values sent to Keys governments by the Monroe County Property Appraiser's Office. The district is required to submit an estimated budget to the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services because the state fiscal year begins in July. The district's fiscal year begins in October. The current year's budget has $11.9 million in budgeted expenses but Doyle said he plans to spend no more than the district's historical average of $11.2 million. He said Monday spending could be as low as $10.72 million. "Assuming our chemical expenses are not excessive and there are no other unforeseen issues, we're on track to spend $500,000 less this year than we" expected, he said. But Southcott was clear he forewarned the board on numerous occasions last budget season that the district continues to spend more money than it's taking in. He said the proposed $11.2 million in operating expenditures includes no money to repair or replace the district's fleet, which includes vehicles, helicopters and airplanes. Southcott also said there's just $100,000 in the budget to address serious concrete spalling repairs that need to be made at the district's Key West building if the district keeps it when its lease with the city of Key West expires in early 2014. "I hate to sound like a broken record about that," he said. "To maintain the level of mosquito control [we have now], you need to take a good hard look at the revenue side." That led commissioners Joan Lord-Papy and Steve Smith to say the time may have come to quit slashing the budget. "You can't keep cutting and not do improvements. It's not possible. How can you plan for a better building in Key West and replacement of helicopters and trucks?" Lord-Papy said. Smith said he's "not advocating a giant tax increase" but that it's the commission's job to "make sure the funding is there." The budget approved Monday has no set tax rate, and the commission at future meetings is free to either cut or increase spending in it. The meeting was more intended to allow Doyle to go over budget goals with the board.But Southcott warns about lack of moneyMOSQUITO CONTROLLawsuit ends with $8,000 paymentAyear and a half after the fact, the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District and Key West resident George Murphy have settled a lawsuit over Murphy's $12,000 contract to host a since-canceled television show. In late 2010, then-district Director Ed Fussell renewed Murphy's contract to host the district's weekly half-hour Comcast Cable Channel 5 show. But Comcast didn't renew the district's contract to air the show. Murphy was left with no work to do and the Mosquito Control Board later eliminated the show's $30,000 line item from its annual budget. Murphy later sued the district, Fussell and board Chairman Bill Shaw, and the case has been ongoing ever since. Monday, the board agreed to pay Murphy $5,000 to create and host a video for its website. Another $3,000 will go to Seascape Productions in Key West for production work. District Director Michael Doyle said Mosquito Control had spent $10,000 in legal fees defending the case. "We're not going to be spending any more on legal fees and the district actually gets a useful product out of it. We'd end up hiring someone eventually to do that kind of work," he said. Board members agreed to the settlement during a closed session with attorneys and later finalized it during the public portion of their meeting. The vote was 3-2, with Commissioner Bill Shaw and Chairman Jack Bridges dissenting. "I would rather have Howdy Doody make a video for us than Mr. Murphy," Bridges said, referring to the children's show puppet from the late 1940s and 50s. In March 2011, district attorneys informed the board that Fussell, who retired two months earlier, violated purchasing procedures by renewing Murphy's contract without consulting the board. He'd apparently done so for years. Shaw was unsuccessful in an attempt to have the $12,000 taken out of a $71,000 check the district cut Fussell for unused sick, compensation and vacation time upon his retirement.MOSQUITO CONTROLBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comThe work on North Roosevelt is expected to take no more than 880 days, with incentives for early completion built into the contract between DOTand its contractor, the Miami-based De Moya Group Inc.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Wednesday,June 20,2012 Bug board tries to streamline operationsThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board kicked off a day full of meetings Monday with an update on a three-year strategic plan drafted by Director Michael Doyle. Commissioner Phil Goodman proposed creating a long-range plan shortly after Gov. Rick Scott appointed him last summer and it was one of Doyle's first charges when he took the top job last July. It covers a broad range of topics but is bent on eliminating a budget shortfall and establishing a "mandatory" amount of cash reserves. Doyle said he's established a baseline of between $2.5 million and $3.5 million in reserves and is working to lower expenses. He's also setting specific categories for reserves and contingency funds. The board approved a tentative budget Monday, even though the fiscal year starts Oct. 1, totaling $13.76 million, with $4 million in reserves, though roughly $1.55 million of that will go to the operating budget. The spending plan will be revised and public budget hearings held in the coming months. Under "nuisance reduction" in the plan, Doyle said the district is working to reduce average bite and trap counts in July, August and September by 20 percent over the average from 2006 through 2011. Bite counts are done by a staffer standing in a spot for one minute and counting how many times he or she gets bitten. On the dengue fever front, Doyle said he's working to create an "emergency dengue response plan" in case of another outbreak in the Keys. Dengue is carried by a mosquito called Aedes aegypti and produces flu-like symptoms that can be fatal. Old Town Key West experienced numerous cases in 2009, but it's been more than two years since a case has been recorded. "It's essentially planning ahead, like for a large weather event," Doyle said. To improve service, Doyle said the district has plans to institute a "one business day" policy for a visit to a resident's home after a request for spraying. It's also investigating new chemicals for use in spray trucks. Doyle said the district is also working to have a more public presence. He does radio interviews and the district is in the midst of a website overhaul. It's already added a map showing where trucks have sprayed or plan to spray. The district has also begun to lower transportation costs by phasing out larger SUVs in favor of twoand four-door pickups, and replacing full-size trucks with smaller Ford Rangers or similar models. The strategic plan also says the district is reviewing driving patterns to reduce fuel consumption.Doyle updates on district's strategic planMOSQUITO CONTROLCity considers allowing large-scale parkingKEY WEST Lower Keys sewer fee comingCome October, Monroe County residents living from Cudjoe Key to Big Pine Key might start paying for the estimated $156 million sewer system that will serve that area when built. After twice compiling potential tax rolls in 2009 and 2011, the County Commission backed off at the last minute because of a roughly $100 million gap in funding for the project, which covers roughly 7,000 parcels. In January 2011, the commission capped a single-family home's assessment for the system at $5,700. That comes up today when the commission, meeting all day at the Marathon Government Center, likely will approve advertising a public hearing in July on the levy. "Acouple of times we came right up to the brink and the commission saw the outside funds weren't coming, so they stopped," Senior Wastewater Director Kevin Wilson said. But with the state Cabinet approving $50 million in grant money last month, the county appears to be moving forward. Of that, $30 million is for the county, the rest for Islamorada. Also on the commission agenda today are a pair of public hearings establishing the "inner island" and "outer island" areas of the project. Wilson said each would have its own tax roll. "There's some discussions about levying everyone now or levying the inner area for calendar year 2012 and outer area for 2013," he said. The inner island area comprises Upper Sugarloaf Key, Cudjoe Key and Summerland Key. Design for that area is complete and scheduled to be constructed first. The outer islands consist of Lower Sugarloaf Key, Ramrod Key and up through Big Pine. Wilson said that portion of the project is about 30 percent designed. Today's commission meeting is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the Marathon Government Center near mile marker 48.5. Wastewater items are scheduled for 4:30 and 5 p.m.Public hearing likely to be set for JulyLOWER KEYSBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBoats and recreational vehicles parked on city roads have long been a bone of contention among neighbors in the crowded residential neighborhoods of Key West. Now, city staff has drafted a proposed ordinance that would let people obtain permits to allow such parking park on city rights of way. The City Commission was poised to hold the first public hearing on the proposed law Tuesday night. Commissioner Tony Yaniz sponsored it. There are several city code provisions that prohibit the parking practice. One section outlaws parking boats, trailers and RVs on city streets; two other sections prohibit storing vehicles on city streets for more than 72 hours and prohibit parking of vehicles longer than 20 feet. The proposed ordinance, designed by Parking Manager John Wilkins, calls for residents who want to park boats, RVs and trailers to apply for a city-issued permit and pay a $500 annual fee. That would get you permission to park a boat or vehicle that's 32 feet long by 10 feet wide. Violations are now enforced in a complaint-driven process that Wilkins calls "not very effective." "Owners of vehicles in violation frequently move their vehicles for a few days, then return it to the same location. Often conflict between neighbors occurs because the investigation began with a complaint. "Confusion about the ordinance is generated because of the large number of vehicles in violation people assume the ordinance is not enforced or that it is enforced selectively. On occasion, vehicles are towed and it is later discovered the owner was out of town on vacation or in [a] hospital." Commissioner Jimmy Weekley says he has "got a real problem" with the ordinance as proposed and received several e-mails from constituents expressing similar concerns. "There's no aesthetic measure to it all," Weekley says. "They can park it on their driveways, their front lawns for all I care, just not on the streets. I think it would cheapen the city." As written, the proposed ordinance would be limited to single-family zoning districts and to streets wide enough to allow for on-street parking; residents who do not have parking on their side of the street would have to obtain a letter of non-objection from the owner of the home the vehicle or boat would obscure; and renters or leaseholders must get consent from the property owner. Wilkins estimates there are more than 200 boats parked in violation of city code. If the law as proposed passed Tuesday, it would go to a second hearing. If not, it could be withdrawn, or rewritten and resubmitted.Some streets would be OK for RVs,boatsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKeynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThis boat rarely leaves a marked residential parking space in the 700 block of Emma Street in crowded Bahama Village.

EDITORIALYet another district blowLETTERS TO THE EDITORLatest from School District shows that despite intentions, problems remain, need fixingWhen it comes to the Monroe County School District, it seems something negative is always rearing its head. The latest is the revelation that Chief of Staff Ken Gentile, who was hired in April 2010 to be the district's independent auditor and specifically to restore public trust in the School District is not a licensed certified public accountant in Florida as he claimed on his resume. He is a licensed CPAin New York. On the grand scale, there have been far worse things at the district since the bad news started rolling in 2009. That's when then-Superintendent Randy Acevedo and his wife Monique were indicted for Monique lifting more than $400,000 from the district by charging personal goods to district credit cards. Randy was called out for covering up her theft. There's been an ongoing battle with the United Teachers of Monroe over the union's contract, foulups with the reconstruction of Horace O'Bryant Middle School in Key West, allegations of sexual harassment against Marathon High School's principal. There have been many more minor headaches. Gentile, since he passed CPAcertification in New York, can get the CPAdesignation in Florida merely by paying a $300 fee to the state Department of Business and Professional Regulation and filling out forms verifying his New York status. So this isn't like practicing law if you've never sat for the bar exam. But it shows that the district, admittedly going through perhaps its most difficult financial time ever, still has a lot of fixing to do. Hiring a top official requires serious due diligence, and apparently the School Board didn't do its due diligence well enough when it hired Gentile. That's apparent from a February 2010 report to the board from recruiting firm The Mercer Group, which wrote: "He is a certified public accountant in New York and that was verified.... I have been unable to confirm his CPA license with the state of Florida." How was that left hanging out there with no question from the board? Why didn't the board, when it short-listed its auditor pool, follow up and see if Gentile held the CPAdesignation in Florida? School Board member John Dick was on the board when it hired Gentile. This week, he told us: "It's serious, OK, at least from what I know so far. It sounds like it's real bad." Gentile says he'll pay his fee and fill out his forms and get his Florida certification. That's fine. But the public needs to know how The Mercer Group's report to the board was never followed through and if there will be protocols put in place to make sure that false claims on resumes don't get through again.Lower speeds through Old Town Key WestThe Key West City Commission on Tuesday was poised to ask state and Monroe County officials to follow its lead and lower the limit on most residential streets controlled by them in the city to 20 mph from 25 mph. Earlier in the month, Commissioner Jimmy Weekley garnered unanimous support for the proposed change, which was expected to pass easily at a Tuesday night commission meeting. Also up for discussion was a companion item from Weekley intended to lower the speed limit on two-lane roads elsewhere on the island. Weekley says four-lane South Roosevelt and North Roosevelt boulevards, under the providence of the state, would maintain their current 30 mph and 35 mph designations, respectively. The real intent, he says, is to lower the speed on the parts of Whitehead and Duval streets, and the two-lane stretch of Flagler, controlled respectively by the county and state. Also a priority is lowering to 20 mph from 25 mph the county-controlled Eaton Street, a major vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian thoroughfare. "That's the main one we'd hope they'd agree to," he says, adding, "I guess there's people showing up who want to oppose it." The first reading of Weekley's ordinance to make the changes was approved at a June 5 meeting and would go into affect upon passage with changes to street signs.Whitehead, Duval,Eaton on the listKeynoter StaffKEY WESTA RARITY FOR MARATHONAirport underutilizedMonroe County taxpayers need a more precise reason from Mayor David Rice as to his most recent visit to Orlando Sanford International Airport to meet with officials with TBI Airport Management Inc. to discuss Florida Keys Marathon Airport.These discussions should not be done before a request for proposals to operate the Marathon airport is completed. This early visit to TBI raises issues of favoritism. I also question why the county waited until three weeks prior to the retirement of airport Manager Reggie Paros to pursue the RFP.The county should have prioritized the airport years ago and put the proper people in place to enhance it by attracting and retaining commercial airlines. The airport could be marketed to commercial airlines as a more favorable airport than the one in Key West. We have a longer runway, a safer approach and departure pattern, no military vectors and better cost factors. When Cuba opens to American commercial airlines, Key West International would not be able to handle a port of arrival from Cuba. The runway allowance will not permit this except on a limited-performance aircraft. Marathon has the potential to accommodate airlines to their requirement for proper port clearance, including customs and immigration facilities. We need to position ourselves for the future by attracting airlines to serve the Middle Keys, not only Key West. Bringing commercial service to Marathon will ensure future growth in air service. The airlines will dictate their needs and if the Key West airport is not adequate, they will go elsewhere. Let's not let a valuable opportunity for Monroe County fail because of regional politics. If the county feels a vibrant airport in Marathon is too much of a burden for Monroe County, then why not let the city of Marathon take it over? The airport would greatly benefit all Monroe County residents if we can keep it local, not outsourced to an outof-county company. Al Pedersen MarathonKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThe TraumaStar helicopter ambulance flies over Florida Keys Marathon Airport on Monday.The letter writer says the county isn't doing its best to make the airport viable for commercial air service. Save-A-Turtle of the Florida Keys member Bill Dehart,the city of Marathon's turtle-nest surveyor,on Saturday documented this green sea turtle crawl on Sombrero Beach. Save-A-Turtle says we don't know of a green turtle in the Marathon area in decades.' Gators,crocs on the moveAs the weather has heated up, so too have Florida's alligator and crocodile activities, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reminds Floridians and visitors to be cautious when having fun in and around water. Florida is home to two native crocodilians, the American alligator, which is found in all 67 counties; and the American crocodile, which may be found in coastal areas of the Keys and in southeast and southwest Florida. Both species have shared Florida's waters with people for centuries. The FWC recommends keeping pets away from the water. There are other precautionary measures people should take to reduce the chances for conflicts with alligators and crocodiles, and they are available in the Living with Alligators brochure at www.myfwc.com/alligator and the Living with Crocodiles brochure at www.myfwc.com/crocodile The FWC advises, if you have concerns with an alligator or crocodile that poses a threat to you, your pets or property, call the FWC's Nuisance Alligator Hotline at (866) 392-4286. Alligators and crocodiles are an important part of Florida's heritage and play a valuable role in the ecosystems where they live. Tony Young, FWC Tallahassee Crocodiles have been the subject of much debate in the Keys since March, when this one yanked a dog off a Key Largo dock and drowned it.Mobility embracedIn August 2010, I fell on our trailer stairs, which resulted in a spinal injury. I have been in a wheelchair ever since. Our trailer stairs presented a barrier to me being able to get out of my and my husband Ken's trailer. Many thanks to Marathon Fire Rescue for providing public assists to Marathon residents. This service was provided to us as needed so I could be transferred in and out of our home so my husband could take me to appointments. The emergency medical technicians were wonderful. Now through the sponsoring Center for Independent Living and Keys Area Interdenominational Resources, the generosity of the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative Charitable Trust and the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation, we were given a grant to purchase a motorized wheelchair lift. It has changed out lives. Now I can get out any time I need to without depending on Marathon Fire Rescue. God bless everyone connected to these charitable organizations and all of those that contribute to them. Carolyn Arsenault MarathonWhere's the patriotism?I moved to Key West from the suburbs of New York five years ago. I really like Key West but am very disappointed in the patriotism, or lack of it, in Key West.We celebrate and have many parades for Cinco de Mayo, gay pride, etc., but no Fourth of July parade. This is very hard for me to believe. Just about every town in New York has a July 4 parade.When I called City Hall, the response was we have fireworks. Fireworks would be fine if we have a parade. What happened to old-fashioned patriotism? Jules Cohen Key West Editor's note: There are July 4 parades in Marathon and Tavernier.Be proud,mentorsWow. What an amazing graduation event for Take Stock in Children this year at Marathon High School.I am so proud of each and every one of our scholars and thank each and every mentor for helping the students of Take Stock reach their dream of higher education.

In human terms, 794,000 people actively seeking jobs failed to find one in May, a drop of 10,000 from April and 187,000 less than May 2011. It's the first time since January 2009 that Florida's numbers fell below 800,000. Florida's civilian workforce in May totaled nearly 9.3 million, an increase of 31,000 over last year. The U.S. rate remained unchanged from April to remain at 8.2 percent. Monroe County (the Florida Keys) had the lowest jobless rate in the state at 4.9 percent. It was followed by Walton County (5.3 percent), Franklin County (6.1 percent) and Lafayette County (6.5 percent.) Flagler and Hendry County had the state's highest unemployment rate, 11.7 percent. That was followed by St. Lucie and Hernando Counties (10.9 percent), and Indian River County (10.4 percent). Jobs officials and the governor touted a laundry list of milestones as the state continues to recover. Florida has experienced 18 consecutive months of year-to-year unemployment rate decreases. The number of jobs has grown year-to-year for 22 straight months. "Florida's continued steady decline in unemployment shows that Florida is on the right track." Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement. "I remain committed to growing private-sector jobs in our state by making Florida the No. 1 place for business so that every Floridian can have the opportunity for a job." Sectors driving the improved numbers included a 2.1 percent increase in retail trade, while manufacturing inched up 1.7 percent. Health care, a particularly large employment sector, grew by 2 percent. Construction employment remains weak, though, with overall construction sector employment down 5.7 percent year-to-year. Of particular interest in Florida's market, building construction employment was off 9.3 percent.Keys again lead state in employmentBy MICHAEL PELTIERNews Service of FloridaUNEMPLOYMENT BUSINESS BRIEFSLeadership social FridayLeadership Monroe County is hosting a social on Friday for people interested in participating in the countywide program. It's set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Pier House Resort, 1 Duval St., Key West. Another one will take place in July in the Middle Keys. Founded in 1992, the program is aimed at residents who are active in leadership roles in the private sector, government or nonprofit area. Through a series of one and multi-day sessions over seven months, topics examined include the environment and natural resources, tourism and the economy, government, education, military, the law and judiciary, emergency management, arts and culture, health and human services, and leadership skill development. The overall goal is to build relationships for constructive alliances among Florida Keys leaders in the public and private sectors.

General Motors and Ford which are burdened with some of corporate America's largest pension obligations are tired of waiting for relief from higher interest rates. The carmakers have announced plans to take billions of pension obligations off their books, either by shifting the risk to retirees through lump-sum payouts or to insurance companies, which provide annuities that will fund the pension payments. Their moves are expected to make other companies think longer and harder about doing the same thing. "I guarantee you there's a lot of corporate [chief financial officers] and treasurers reading these headlines and asking the same questions," said Jeffrey B. Saef, of BNYMellon Asset Management. GM estimates it will take $26 billion in pension liabilities off its books by the end of the year by offering lumpsum payments to 42,000 of its 118,000 retired salaried workers. For retirees who do not take the one-time payment to settle their pension claims, GM will purchase an annuity that will make pension payments. Ford is offering lump sum payments to 90,000 retirees, but will not use an annuity to pay for benefits for retirees who do not accept the offer. How much its pension liability will be reduced depends on how many of the 90,000 agree to take the lump sum payment. Both companies can afford the measure because their pension plans are relatively well funded compared to other companies. Mercer, which advises companies on human resource issues, said pension plans sponsored by S&P1,500 companies are 76 percent funded, meaning they can pay 76 cents of every $1 in pension benefits they are obligated to pay. BNYMellon said U.S. private sector pension plans are only 70 percent funded. "The more well funded you are, the more you can afford to transfer pension risk," said Jay Dinunzio, of Dietrich & Associates, a Plymouth Meeting, Pa., firm that helps pension plan sponsors find annuities to fund retirement benefits.Interest ratesLow interest rates are part of those costs. Companies measure their pension obligations based on long-term interest rates. The lower rates are, the more pension liabilities grow. That's because low interest rates mean assets in the pension fund will not grow as fast, so there has to be more money to meet future obligations. Conver-sely, pension liabilities shrink when interest rates rise, relief that companies have been waiting for in vain. Companies interested in purchasing annuities to reduce their pension burden but waiting for higher interest rates to lower the price tag for doing that "are probably going to be waiting a long time," said Byron Beebe, of Aon Hewitt, a benefits consultant.Annuities and payouts bring down burdenMcClatchyTribuneRETIREMENT to a specialevent that will explore issues facing seniors in The Keys Be our guest at an informative seminar designed for seniors age 62 or greater.

Story, 2B Southernmost commemoration A U.S.Navy ship named for Key West gets special recognition on Saturday.Story, 2B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Head farout forbig dolphinThe dolphin bite has definitely been more hit than miss this week, with lots of schoolies and the occasional big fish over 20 pounds.The schoolies are anywhere from 400 feet and out, whereas the larger fish are mostly offshore 25 to 30 miles. There are multitudes of sub-legal dolphin mixed in with the schoolies, so be sure to have your measuring stick with you and remember that the minimum size is 20 inches to the fork not the tip of the tail.Most of the dolphin action has been on weed lines, but the heftier specimens are coming from under frigate birds. There is also quite a bit of floating debris holding nice-size wahoo in the 20to 40-pound range. The floaters are also hiding tripletail and rainbow runners. On the reef, the yellowtail snapper bite remains very good. Be sure to have ample chum since the fish respond best to large quantities of the free stuff. Ever-increasing numbers of threeto five-pound mangrove snapper are showing in the slicks. They're biting best on small live pinfish fished on jig heads near the bottom. There are still fair numbers of grouper here, as well, but the shorts are outnumbering the keepers about two to one. The catch on the wrecks is mutton snapper plus medium-size 20 to 30 pounds amberjack and large jack crevalle. Live pinfish and live ballyhoo work best. Bayside, there's still some decent mangrove snapper action, and the Everglades area is producing good sea trout fishing.The week's bestCapt. Howard Kelley and mate Neil Apley, fishing on the Captain Pip's boats and the FinChaser in Marathon, have been fishing offshore and on the reef.Jeff Snow and Mary Talley from Middleburg, Fla., came back to the dock with a nice haul of dolphin, while the Tatomer crew from Seminole landed two large black grouper. Capt. Jeff Shelar, of Catch Em All Charters docked at Captain Pip's Marina in Marathon, reports lots of heavy lifters and gaffers from 600 to 1,100 feet. Inshore, his anglers caught yellowtail and lane snapper, hogfish and a 50-plus-pound amberjack landed by Tate McCasland from Texas. In the gulf, Shelar has had a nice variety of permit, jacks, snapper and sharks. The SeaSquared fished offshore and on the reef, with dolphin, tripletail, yellowtails and black grouper coming back to the dock. We also had several combo snapper/shark trips to Florida Bay, with our anglers catching limits of mangroves along with countless large lemon sharks, all released unharmed. Capt. Kevin Wilson of Knee Deep Charters out of the Geiger Key Marina in the Lower Keys showed his anglers a great time on the reef. Kenny Hauck, along with his dad Ken and grandpa Cary Jones from Jupiter, caught yellowtails and triggerfish. And Ted Hudson, from England, bagged his limit of yellowtails. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Reel Lucky Charters in Key West, had good luck with 60to 80-pound tarpon on the incoming tide in front of Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. On the reef in 45 feet of water, the yellowtails, mangroves and big margates bit like mad. Offshore, Mottice picked up nice dolphin and skipjack tuna on trolled ballyhoo.Casting contestCapt.

Call Laura Now at 743-5551 LivingMemorial getting an additionThe Key West Council of the United States Navy League is hosting the dedication of a monument at the Mallory Square Military Memorial at 9 p.m. Saturday to commemorate one of three Navy ships named for the city. There will be guest speakers, a color guard, laying of a wreath and a flyover by VFC-11 Sundowners. The dedication is for the second Navy ship named for the Southernmost City, a Tacoma-class frigate commissioned on Nov. 7, 1944. She operated from the East Coast of the United States escorting convoys carrying war materials to the Mediterranean Sea for the European Theater of Operations. She also participated in the Battle of the Atlantic, the longest campaign of World War II. She was sold for scrap in 1947. The first Key West was a wooden stern-wheeler built in Pennsylvania for private use in 1862 and later acquired by the Union Navy during the Civil War. She was commissioned into the Navy on May 26, 1863, and assigned to escort troops and supply ships on Confederate waterways and the Tennessee River. The third ship named after the city is a Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine launched in July 1985 and commissioned in 1987. The USS Key West visited her namesake city in 1987 for a weeklong celebration after commissioning, and again in 1992 and 1994. After many deployments and accomplishments, she returned to her homeport of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in 2010 for an overhaul.Second ship named for city commemoratedMILITARY Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYCrew members are aboard the second Key West'in El Kibar Algerie in 1945.Radio's Field Day is SaturdayThe Florida Keys Amateur Radio Club hosts Field Day 2012, presented by the Amateur Radio Relay League of the United States, this Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. in Key West. The event will be held at the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Ingham Maritime Museum & National Historic Landmark at the Truman Waterfront at the end of Southard Street. Members of the Amateur Radio Relay League activate when there are public emergencies to get the word out about such emergencies. Field Day events are open to the public and all licensed amateur radio relayers. Overall, national organizers estimate 35,000 radio operators will join in. The details: Licensed amateur radio operators practice using their equipment under less-than-perfect conditions in a simulated emergency setting. They educate and promote the amateur radio world to those that might be interested in learning more about it. They work as many stations around the world as possible on most of the amateur radio bands. With the solar cycle peaking for this year's event, some long-distance contacts are expected to be made. You can learn more about the global scope of Field Day 2012 events at www.arrl.org/field-day.Truman event open to all interestedKEY WESTHaz-mat training plannedDespite Spanish company Repsol deciding to abandon is exploratory oil drilling off Cuba, training to respond to an oil spill in the Florida Keys remains a priority.

The online social network's Discover London 2012 page is a portal that connects users with the profile pages of hundreds of athletes, national teams, and official organizing bodies. Fans can support and interact with swimmer Michael Phelps, basketball stars LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, and about 200 athletes already on the site. More will be added, Facebook says. The company said Monday the London Olympics, which run from July 27 to August 12, will be the "first truly social Games" because so many can get involved online. But a spokesman admitted that it would be impossible to get all countries up on the site. Team China, for example, is missing because Facebook is banned there. Associated Press

Observer crossword puzzle "Oh,Great!" Solution in the June 23 Keynoter Crossword solutionSolution to the June 16 puzzle. Goal: Stopping plastic-bag useBig Pine Key resident Ken Chopcinski is organizing what he calls Ban the Bag in the Florida Keys, an effort aimed at eliminating single-use plastic bags in the Big Pine Key area. The initial meeting is set for 6 p.m. Sunday at the Lower Keys Property Owners Association building, 1668 Bogie Drive, Big Pine. The initiative is meant to be an action campaign. The awareness is already there, Save-A-Turtle says, so the meeting will be limited to organizing and implementing an action plan. Florida law restricts local governments from banning single-use plastic bags, so the effort is really an appeal to residents and retailers to voluntarily comply. The results, if successful, would mean fewer dangers for wildlife, among other things. If it works on Big Pine, it could be expanded throughout the Keys. Here's the general concept to get it started: Create a committee to create a list of retailers and a form to poll them on whether they're willing to help. Create a website. Send a bulk mail to all Big Pine residents. Reconvene to assess the data collected and determine the strategy going forward. Explore the viability of a T-shirt and tote-bag program to fund further action. Explore the viability of a sticker for the door of compliant retailers.Organizational meeting set for SundayENVIRONMENT Reef Relief of Key West was joined by 21 volunteers who spent the first Sunday of this month helping clean the shore off Murray Marine on Stock Island.Volunteers removed 1,206 pounds of debris including fishing gear,a TV, food wrappers,plastic bags,bottles even a BB gun.STOCK ISLAND CLEANUP MARINE GROUP AWARDS Jorge Bosque from the Middle Keys Marine Association presents the group's 2012 $500 college scholarships to graduating Coral Shores High School students Miranda Camp and Joshua Reihl.Also receiving scholarships were Marathon High's Cassidy Burgos and Eduardo Velasquez
